Everyday I'm Tumblrn' ...

I have succumbed to the cult and joined Tumblr. I am aiming for this to be a more visual incarnation of the blog, where I mainly just post images that capture my imagination. These will more than likely just be inspiring fashion and beauty images that I find on the net, in magazines, reblog from other Tumblrs and from an amazing makeup artist friend of mine (whom I will talk about in greater detail another time). If you feel like it, check it out here and if you have a Tumblr yourself please feel free to post the link in a comment so that I can follow! C xx

I went SHOPPING! Now, I know that that seems like a rather normal thing to do, but I honestly feel like I haven't been clothes shopping in ages. It probably hasn't actually been that long, but oh well. During the trip, we have been saving all of our shopping for London, so that we don't have to lug extra clothes around Europe, but I couldn't resist. While in Bordeaux, I bought new socks and tights (I know, super exciting) and a new coat, which I LOVE, all from H & M. I really miss H & M, it is pretty much where I spent all my spare money while on exchange in Sweden.
Coat: H&M, Leggings: H&M, Shirt: Marcs by Marc Jacobs, Scarf: Rome street vendor, Boots: Target, Bag: H&M I just realised that I am wearing a lot of stuff from H & M ... Woops! Sneak peek into the future - there is going to be a lot more before I leave Europe! :) C xx

Slave to the Wage

I have to say, I am not normally a fan of Louis Vuitton. I don’t like the ‘in-your-face-ness’ of the logo, or the customary colour scheme, or even really the shape of the bags. However, when I was flicking through the pages of the French Vogue magazine I bought, this golden little number caught my eye.
I didn’t even realise it was Louis Vuitton, which I like. I also really like the idea of it, of cuffing your clutch to your wrist. It combines and toughness with a touch of glamour, which really appeals to me. I realise that this bag is kind of old (AW11), but I haven’t noticed any knock-offs or ‘inspired by’ pieces in any chainstores, so I am thinking that I may just have to try and DIY this when I get home to Australia!

Hello my lovelies! My European adventure continues. S and I have just spent the last 5 days in Paris and in all honesty, it was truly magical. I love Paris. The City of Lights has captured both our hearts and our imaginations and I believe that It will never let go. The only downer was that out hostel had no internet, which made it a tad heart to update the blogs, research sights and attractions and plan ahead, but we managed. We are now in Bordeaux (and thankfully have internet - yay!) and loving being to just relax a little. I have also told S about my blog, and he has become my official photographer! It was not as embarrassing as I thought it would be, thank goodness. As I thought it was going to be SUPER embarrassing. One morning we decided to head down to the cimetière du Père-Lachaise, a beautiful old cemetery filled with famous graves. Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Heloise and Abelard, Edith Piaf and Balzac are just a few of those interred here. A word of warning: if you plan on visiting the cemetery, set aside a LOT of time. The cemetery is huge and made for simply wandering :)
Jumper: belongs to S, Leggings: H&M, Scarf: random vendor at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Shoes: Zomp After looking through my photos, I realised that I haven't yet blogged about a lot of previous places and events. Apologies in advance for the next few posts being extremely out of order! C xx

Hipsta Highlights

Hey all!

Sorry for continuing to be a bad blogger ... Still not inspired clothing wise. I think I brought too many basics and not enough 'stand-out' pieces. We are now in Italy, so at least the weather is warmer and I don't have to rug up quite as much! Previously I was wearing stockings, thick socks, jeans, singlet, shirt, hoodie, thick jacket, scarf, beanie and gloves. It feels so good to not have so many layers on!!

I have been taking a few hipstamatic pics of the sites, and thought I would share some with you :)
